The Roadhawk HD is a great DVR for your vehicle. But it's not so cool to have your cigarette/power port tied up exclusively for your Roadhawk HD when you've got other devices that need power like your smartphone, GPS, etc.

Here is a great solution for that... this is a hardwire kit for the RoadhawkHD. It's not that difficult to install or can be installed by someone else for you. The power plug cord is 16 feet in length that should accommodate most installations. The power lead is 3' and has an inline fuse. There is also a small inline box that apparently is an automatic low-voltage shutoff swtich to protect your battery from getting too low if you have this wired directly to the battery rather than on a switched circuit.

If you were to go to Radio Shack and purchase the wire and connectors necessary to make your own hardwire kit, you'd probably spend this much anyway. Might as well just get this since it's all ready to go.

I was provided a sample for review.

Good quality cable and long enough to reach where you need it to go. This is a must have for hard wiring a dash cam into your vehicle.

First, the Roadhawk HD camera is a great camera. I have a Roush Stage 3 Mustang in which I have mounted the camera to the rear view mirror using a BlendMount radar detector mirror mount. I wanted to power the camera from the 12 volts available in the dimming rear view mirror. At first I intended to make a simple power cable using a MirrorTap radar detector power cord and the camera connector supplied with the power cord from the Roadhawk camera. But I realized that the power cord included a voltage regulator and that I should probably make a cable that includes the voltage regulator rather than a cable that supplies 12 volts directly to the camera. I didn't want to cut up the camera-supplied cigarette lighter power cord, so I opted for this 12 volt power cord kit. I made a short cable that uses the 12 volts from the dimming mirror, the voltage regulator from this power kit, and the camera power connector also from this kit. The voltage regulator is attached to the rear view mirror using 3M double-sided automotive tape. Doing so, the camera works great.

I was shopping for a simple mount to utilize my Sony Action Cam on the fender of my car for some beach footage. Mounting was simple as pulling the top mounted thumb tab and the unit was secure. While I utilized a tether, I really didn’t need to for the 45 minutes I was shooting; the unit remained put.

Build quality is exceptional on a mount at this price point. While not suited for windshield use because of angle limitations, you can utilize it mounting a camera upside down and simply flip the video in post-production. The Timetec is best suited for hard, non-porous surfaces. Worthy of mentioning, on a vertical surface the mount will be 5 degrees short of level so you may have to utilize another swivel for level mounting. You have approximately 30 degrees adjustability on either side of dead vertical and a true 45-degree drop from vertical. The suction component is released via a smallish rubber tab that might give those of us with big hands fits but otherwise, it demonstrates good ergonomics and utility. A single turn knob locks your angle into place and rest assured, it will remain in place once tightened.

For the street price of about $10.00 it represents a great value for counter or flat top mounts for an action, small video or point & shoot camera, though if you were space conscious and wanted additional versatility, you might want to look at a more versatile unit.

I turn on the car and the dashcam starts recording. I turn off the car and it stops recording. It's totally unobtrusive.

...which is one of four separate Road Hawk accessories that appear under this ASIN.

My original 12v/24v input - 12v output power cable that plugs into what was once known as a cigarette lighter socket (these days; so many power-hungry devices, so few smokers in cars...I'm not sure what the neologism should be) to power the Road Hawk DC-2 failed.

I unsuccessfully searched for an aftermarket replacement, and this input (12-24v) - output (12v) combination is surprisingly difficult to find online. I found one on amazon, but the male output plug was a different form factor than the socket on the Road Hawk DC-2.

This solved that problem. Reasonably priced, and brings the juice to the DC-2 again.

What's not to like ?

Very handy if you know how to install. Looks so much cleaner when installed and frees up the cigarette charger socket.
BMW Z4M has a massive space behind the light fixture in the crossbeam of the roof that hides the excess wire nicely.

Easy to install and prevents having to deal with extra wiring from the 12V outlet to the Roadhawk unit.
I would recommend this item to anyone who is considering purchasing the Roadhawk Digital Recorder.

This GPS antenna is the same antenna that comes with the RoadhawkHD camera. I had to buy a replacement when I bought a new car, and it works just as it should. Zero problems with it.
